Default Futaba Super 8 VS 9CA

Is the 9C radio that much better than the super 8 series? I am very interested to hear your thoughts as to if you have flown both radios and what you think about the camparison between the two. Thanks. Fly safe and enjoy.

Hi Greg!
You can see a direct comparison of features at:

the biggest change is the ease of programming and how much faster you can get around in the radio.

Sincerely,

Ann Marie thanks for your advice as I have received my 9CAP transmitter and I love it, thanks. It came in just in time for me to knock my 8UAFS onto a concrete floor and break off the gimble sticks and a switch, smooth move, I am not happy with myself for this one. Well she is packed and ready for shipment to hobby services for repair.

Hey tell me about it. Worse yet my 14 yr old stepson just dropped my battery cycler about 2 or 3 weeks prior and I read him the riot act. Guess I will be eating some humble pie.

I just acquired a 9CAP and find that it is very similar to the 8UAFs. THe main differences that I have found is the triple rates, 2 timers, transmitter output and servo cycling. There may be other subtle differences but these are the biggies that I have seen and used.
